Thanks, I've fond some articles on the controversy you mentioned how unscrupulous!

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

I can't believe they all sat by..

And here's a quote from said owner:

As a vet tech, I had the opportunity to work with many different breeds of horses and there was really no doubt Arabians are one of the most willing, intelligent and sociable breeds out there.
I'm praying and crossing my fingers she will cooperate with authorities with horses identities and re-homing them.

I think that she was breeding for color only. Even though she had a few nice horses, she apparently preferred color to quality. That is really not important if she was able to sell the horses and place them in good homes. She apparently was not able to. Horses will only bring $35,000 if they are really show quality or winning race horses. Nice riding horses bred for color might bring $3,500.

Then again, I wonder if she was turning down sales because she knew that people would discover her dirty little neglect secret.

I noticed that she was advertising some half Arab horses at stud which I personally find a little weird.

Carpe Diem!

This is horrible, and i agree that she should be locked in a dungeon for the rest of her life. how could any one do something like this!
I hope the survivors make it, and get to find loving forever homes.

How many horses did she start with? Did any of the stallions survive? This is so sad. :( I feel sorry for the beautiful horses, if not badly-conformed, then they at least looked happy in the photos. Too bad it all changed...

These horses were nothing but money to her. If she couldn't get rich off of them, she let them die.

There are so many young girls on this forum that would love to have their own horse. She could have donated them to someone that cared.

Unless this woman has been imprisoned in a dungeon, unable to escape, for the past year, she is the picture of pure evil.
She should be imprisoned in a filthy dungeon and NOT FED until she dies for what she's done. I'm completely sickened by this.

News reports said the survivors included 2 stallions, a 5 month old colt and the rest were mares....I have not seen a lot of pictures of the remaining horses...

They are in such poor condition, it's hard to pinpoint a breed when you do see a picture....

More recent reports say that they (the owners of the horses, not animal control or the county) admitted to having to shoot 6 of the horses (I have to assume it's because they were down, news did not say that)....

this link has a video that shows more of the horses...I am not familiar with Shatomar or the horses you folks have mentioned, but some of you may recognize "faces."

and she is currently in jail in WV...go to

West Virginia Regional Jail and Correctional Facility Authority

and you can do an inmate search by her last name.

Have a friend who personally knows the Roane County prosecuter and he says they will be tough on her...let's hope..
